2018 In My View competition

This competition is a combined photographic and writers competition. It is a competition that aims to demonstrate how the story of a photograph is seen through the eye of the beholder.

The 20 finalists photographic images for 2018 have been identified and can be viewed at https://inmyview.net.au/index.php/finalist-images-2018

Individual writers and groups are invited to create a story in prose or poetry inspired by one of these images.

The resultant body of work (photographs and stories) will then be published in a limited edition book.

The topic for 2018 is “We are Australian”
